CSV Importer
Any way to automate and schedule uploads? (6 posts)

    Thanks for the plugin, it has saved me tons of time. I know I am going a little extreme here, but is there anyway to automate and schedule the upload process.

    Example would be that I have a csv file for each day of the week and I want the files to be uploaded each day automatically on a schedule. Is this possible? Maybe in a paid version? If not, maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    I would love to know how to do this too - any success with this, Jay?

    I wonder if it can be incorporated into a cron job or even a call in a theme function to do it every day or so?

    Any one have ideas or suggestions?

    No solution as of yet, but I am working on one. A cron job would be your best option at this point.

    I am working on this too. I'd like to use curl or php to call the csv-importer function, but failed at the wordpress enviroment. I can't not call the plugin directly.

    Any advises are welcome.

    It is working now. I get some hints from here http://codex.wordpress.org/Integrating_WordPress_with_Your_Website
    Just set up a new php file and include wp-blog-header.php. then the class in plugin can be called from my php page.
